These don't look like the typical Banana Spiders I see in other posts. Any Spider experts recognize them?

I do not know this one but great work shooting it!
It would help if you let people know the region it was shot in.

Looks like a juvenile orb weaver.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.

Actually, maybe it's a long-jawed orb weaver.

Thanks all :)

Shot in Brazos Bend State Park southwest of Houston - so Texas gulf coast wetlands.

I will look along the Orb Weaver variants as there are similarities.
